Now these are the judgments which thou shalt setbefore them.
If thou buy an Hebrewservant,sixyears he shall serve : and in the seventh he shall go outfree for nothing.3
If he came in by himself,a he shall go out by himself: if he were married , then his wife shall go out with him.
If his master have given him a wife, and she have born him sons or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself.5
And if the servant shall plainlysay , I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go outfree:6
Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.7
And if a mansell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not go out as the menservantsdo .
If she pleasebnot her master, who hath betrothed her to himself, then shall he let her be redeemed : to sell her unto a strangenation he shall have no power , seeing he hath dealt deceitfully with her.
And if he have betrothed her unto his son, he shall deal with her after the manner of daughters.10
If he take him another wife; her food, her raiment, and her duty of marriage, shall he not diminish .
And if he do not these three unto her, then shall she go outfree without money.
